|Malacanang issues an apology over the LRT collision incident|
| Malacañang issued an apology on Sunday over the LRT Line 1collision incident in Monumento, Caloocan last Saturday morning.
“Humihingi kami ng paumanhin sa ating mga mamamayan habang patuloy na isinasakatuparan ng pamahalaan ang pagpapahusay sa serbisyo ng LRT at MRT,” said Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Herminio Coloma, Jr., in a radio interview with dzRB Radyo ng Bayan.
According to reports, the collision of two trains of the LRT Line 1 hurt a train operator and caused temporary suspension of train operations in the area.
LRT Authority (LRTA) spokesperson Hernando Cabrera said power supply fluctuated at around 7 am on Saturday on EDSA Monumento, this caused one of the trains to stop. However, an approaching train kept moving and hit the stalled train.
“Hindi po tumitigil ang pamahalaan sa pagtataguyod ng kaligtasan at kaginhawaan ng ating mga kababayang gumagamit ng serbisyo ng LRT at MRT,” Said Coloma. PND (ag)
